It’s official…I’m addicted to ice cream!
And I’m not complaining, especially when Andy offers to take me out after dinner to get some deliciousness and pay for it. Who could refuse? Certainly not this addict.
Last night Andy and I headed to Jerry’s Dari to get our fix.
I decided to get one of their homemade flavors, peanut butter chocolate chip. It was good, as almost all ice cream is, but to be honest…It could have used more peanut butter flavor. But that didn’t stop me from eating it all 😉 Next time I’ll try something else in hopes for more flavor or get my beloved hot fudge sundae. You can’t go wrong with hot fudge!
Andy decided to get a cone with mint chocolate chip. Have I mentioned I absolutely hate cones? Andy thinks I’m so strange and proceeds to tell me that the last bite of the cone is simply the best. Sorry, but I prefer my ice cream in a cup!
Before our ice cream excursion, we did actually have a real meal. Tonight’s meal came together in literally 6 minutes. My kind of meal! With the help of my freezer, I made whole wheat ravioli with pasta sauce and veggies (which were also frozen).
I picked up the ravioli at Whole Foods. While they were good and a great meal to have on hand, it was lacking some flavor (what is it with food lacking flavor today?).
I’ve tried other flavors, and they’re much better. These get a C+ rating from me. However, adding some grated cheese definitely helped spruce this meal up. Cheese is amazing like that.
Even with the lack-o-flavor it did not stop me from cleaning my plate. I was a hungry gal’!
Yesterday’s workout might have had something to do with my big appetite at dinner time. I did some intervals and steady state running on the treadmill during my lunch break (which is 30-minutes).
My workout looked like this:
- 0:00-5:00: 5.5 MPH
- 6:00-7:00: 8.0 MPH
- 7:00-9:00: 6.0 MPH
- 10:00-11:00: 8.0MPH
- 11:00-13:00: 6.0 MPH
- 13:00-14:00: 8.0 MPH
- 14:00-16:00: 6.0 MPH
- 16:00-17:00: 8.0 MPH
- 17:00-25:00: 6.0 MPH
Lately I have been running outside and I found myself getting just a teeny bit restless on the treadmill. So after 25 minutes I called it quits and hopped on the stationary bike for 5 minutes, keeping my pace above 100 RPM and the resistance between 7-8.
The change of equipment kept my momentum and motivation up and afterwards I was a sweaty mess!
Exercise Time of Day
I actually liked getting a mid-day workout. Usually I am a morning exerciser all the way. But since I am working the opening shift at work on Tuesdays and Thursdays that means a wake up call of 5AM to get to work at 6AM. A morning workout is not happening before 5AM, I refuse!
Mid-day seems to work better for me than after work as well. After work all I want to do is relax and my motivation to move is at its low point.
Alright, it’s time for me to do that pesky work thing. Just kidding, I love my job but if I had the choice, I’d be sitting on my couch watching The Real Housewives and eating pizza. I guess that will just have to wait until Pizza Friday!
Do you prefer your ice cream in a cone or a cup?
What time of day do you prefer to exercise?
